This is a complete gravity fed water drip kit for either the electroplated steel discs or the soft flexible polishing pads. It contains everything you need to set it up to deliver a steady clean drip of water to the wheel or disc.
Two Plastic Spigots.
2 plastic "nuts".
4 silicone rubber washers
3-foot length of flexible, high quality 3/8 inch ID vinyl tubing.
8-inch plastic and copper adjustable length nozzle.
14-inch plastic and copper nozzle (for use with a smaller plastic container without additional tubing).
Hose clamp to attach to splash pan.
(1) Drill a 7/8 inch (preferred) or 1-inch hole near the bottom a 5-gallon bucket or other plastic containers, clean any rough edges with sandpaper.
(2) Bolt the plastic spigot on to the bucket or other container, tightening by hand.
(3) Push on the flexible vinyl tube to the spigot, and/or the 14" long plastic/copper nozzle (there are two options, one with tubing, the other directs the drip directly without tubing.
(4) Attach one or all of the three hose clamps as needed to hold the tube in place, and adjust the length of the nozzle to the center of the wheel (when using the tubing).
The bottom of the bucket or other container should be above the level of the copper/plastic nozzle and surface of the wheel.
Also suitable for dripping water for Lapidary or any other water based grinding.

I finally got the dripper put together and wish I had put it together when I first got it in the mail - which was very prompt.
I had been using a dripper bottle to keep things wet when grinding, but this allows for me to have two hands on my pot, or one hand on the rotary tool, and one on the pot.
So much easier!
AND so much safer as the water keeps the dust from flying.
This is a great product.
